“quiet, solid and dependable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2013

Opened in 1970 and still doing what it does best: quality prime rib, ribs and other classic fayre. We enjoyed the prime rib and bbq babybacks. The meals come with good side options (including garlic smashed potatoes!) and a soup starter (we had a good clam chowder). Atmospehere was a dark and quiet family vibe, which worked well.

When passing though LaCrosse we think its worth dropping in here.

“Best food and service we've had in La Crosse!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I only get a date night about once a month so we are pretty particular about our restaurants. We've somehow missed out on this gem all these years. What a perfect dinner! The ribeye was amaaaazing. A must have if you eat here. I had the scallops which were HUGE and delicious as well. Wait staff was very friendly but bartender Sam clinched the prize. We decided against other bars and stayed there for her service with great conversation with a smile. Solid five stars!

“Quiet, exceptional dining”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2013 via mobile

Always fine dining with excellent appetizers, breads, and cocktails. Service is extremely attentive and personal. The unassuming location hides a relaxing and interesting interior. There are always surf and turf specials with interesting new items from the sea combined with top quality meats.

“What a Gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

We chose Digger's Sting based on the reviews of the rib eye steaks they serve. My husband had one and claimed it was the best (and biggest I might add) that he can ever remember having. Cooked perfectly, it was tender and had a wonderful flavor. I had the prime rib and BBQ ribs combo and was in heaven. As mentioned by others, that garlic bread is out of this world. We will certainly return, this place is my new favorite!

“Great food and service!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2013

It's like you're walking into a 40's Mafia restaurant. Excellent garlic bread, steaks, and fish. Tasty dessert martinis too. Service is always great.
